Summer STEM Opportunities for Arizona Youth
Arizona youth have so many exciting summer programs to choose from this year to meet their needs and interests. We’d like to highlight a few opportunities to get youth engaged in hands-on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) this summer:
SPOT 127 Summer Programs
SPOT 127, KJZZ’s youth media center, empowers Valley youth with digital media skills that are vital to today’s information economy. Their free afterschool programs and summer camps provide mentoring and instruction in multimedia production. SPOT 127 invites teens to participate in their summer offerings where they will gain hands-on experience in audio and video production, and become proficient in Adobe software, and the use of cameras and recording equipment. Choose from a 2-week Summer Boot Camp or drop-in sessions from May through July.
Tucson Village Farm Camp
Budding farmers and chefs ages 6-11 will spend the week at Tucson Village Farm Camp this summer experiencing a full seed-to table curriculum. Campers will plant, harvest, and learn cooking techniques while preparing their own farm-fresh lunch every day using the produce they’ve harvested that morning during Farm Chores. From feeding the Tucson Village Farm chickens, seeing a honeybee colony in action with our observation hive and visiting a real dairy cow to learning about soil texturing and building community through active games, campers will participate in a wide variety of educational and fun activities.
GCU STEM Summer Camps
At Grand Canyon University’s STEM Summer Camps, students can spend four days and three nights on the beautiful GCU Phoenix campus while experiencing fun and hands-on activities which explore a variety of STEM subjects and careers. GCU’s STEM summer camps give students the opportunity to learn how STEM integrates in our daily lives and through exciting jobs – engineers, health care professionals, scientists, architects, computer programmers and many more!!
